Saxon math programs produce confident students who are not only able to correctly compute, but also to apply concepts to new situations. These materials gently develop concepts, and the practice of those concepts is extended over a considerable period of time. This is called "incremental development and continual review." Material is introduced in easily understandable pieces (increments), allowing students to grasp one facet of a concept before the next one is introduced. Both facets are then practiced together until another one is introduced. This feature is combined with continual review in every lesson throughout the year. Topics are never dropped but are increased in complexity and practiced every day, providing the time required for concepts to become totally familiar. Each grade level has its own consumable meeting book, which is used during The Meeting at the beginning of each day. This first edition meeting book is for Grade 1.
Saxon Math is easy to plan and rewarding to teach. The focus on providing teachers with strategies for developing an understanding of HOW and WHY math works builds a solid foundation for higher-level mathematics. - Publisher.
